Was not able to check in when I arrived, although I was early. Which then required me to check in after my event which meant 11 PM. Upon checking in, was told that they only had a room with a king size bed although I booked the room with two doubles and three guests. Then the elevators were out for the entirety of our stay. Not a good weekend.

Great Hotel in the middle of everything!! So comfortable that i felt like I was at my house. Hotel Decor might not be for everyone: collegiate & Iowa theme. It is very clean & details are noticeable.
